Sisters Amy and Nancy Harrington, the Passionistas, at Radio City Music Hall on Oprah's Lifeclass Tour.
As the Passionistas, we have always approached everything we do with great passion. Since 2010, with the Pop Culture Passionistas, we made a career based on our love of pop culture. Our positive and inspirational entertainment content — including interviews, articles and trivia challenges — has been syndicated to Yahoo, OMG!, Examiner, Screenpicks, Belief.net and many more.
Most recently we have been inspired by the new women’s movement and are now building on that dialogue. Through The Passionistas Project we are sharing the positive stories of strong, empowered and passionate women from all disciplines and walks of life. Our mission is to inspire women of all ages to pursue their dreams, overcome obstacles and take charge of their own destinies through a podcast, subscription box, monthly events and an annual Women's Equality Summit.
We have conducted over 1,400 interviews including more than 60
one-on-one oral histories for The Interviews for the Television Academy Foundation — including in-depth conversations with actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Danny DeVito, Ed O’Neill and Charlotte Rae, former CBS president Nina Tassler and esteemed television directors Beth McCarthy Miller (30 Rock, Modern Family), Lesli Linka Glatter (Mad Men, Homeland) and Pamela Fryman (How I Met Your Mother, One Day at a Time). Other interviews include Lily Tomlin, Ron Howard, Tina Fey, Carol Burnett, Ryan Murphy, Judith Light, Chaz Bono, Alan Alda, Penny Marshall, Lance Bass and Iyanla Van Zant.
We were handpicked by OWN to be part of the VIP digital press corps covering Oprah’s Lifeclass during Winfrey’s tour of the U.S. and Toronto. We have produced interviews for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Rock and Politics, Rolling Stone Magazine and Rock on TV exhibits. And through our work as MediaMine’s Creative Directors we helped to create the Official Hollywood Walk of Fame App, a thousand-question Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson trivia game and more.
NOTE: In order to avoid sibling rivalry issues and to keep you guessing, the Passionistas always speak in the royal we.
